Here is our guide to Shop Savvy /Stay Chic this Autumn/Winter

Firstly:Check out what you’ve already got in your wardrobe. Does it still fit/Has it past it’s sell by date/Does it need repaired or Is it Good to Go?
Think 1: Do you need to buy anything to make it work ?
ie underwear/accessories:jewellery/shoes or belts
Think 2: Each season trends come and go, so give a nod to the trends to keep your wardrobe current – if in doubt our Fashion Forecasts will be available soon!
Think 3: Does your wardrobe mirror your lifestyle? There is no point in having a wardrobe full of ballgowns if you never get to the ball. Think cost per wear. Invest in the pieces you wear most, to get that feel good factor every day.

Look Good, Feel Fantastic

When you look in the mirror nowadays, do you struggle to recognise the stranger staring back at you?

Do you feel like your sense of style has disappeared along with your waistline?

Do you feel more drab than fab?

Research shows that how you look has a huge impact on how you feel, so if you want to look and more importantly feel fantastic, let your wardrobe lead the way.

As trained Personal Image Consultants it is our job to enhance each individual, so their flaws will fade and their confidence will soar.

From our clients mouths “ My wardrobe halved, as my confidence doubled” “Thanks for giving me the confidence to go bold with colour”  “ I never knew I could look this good” “I could have saved a fortune if I had this done when I was 18”.

Three of the most common wardrobe woes that ladies bring to us are:

Dilemma – My wardrobe is dated and I feel boring.

Solution – We find many ladies lose confidence as they get older and so shy away from colour and stick to a neutral, so called “safe” palette of beiges, greys and blacks.  Although some may argue this looks classic, it also looks boring and can be ageing.  Black is not everyone’s friend and especially as skin and hair lighten, it can look harsh and draining.  Although many people choose black as “it has a slimming effect and goes with everything”, many other colours can have the same effect and are much more youthful and interesting.   Adding colour, in tones that flatter you, is a fantastic cheap and easy way to update your look.

Dilemma – I am scared of making a fashion faux pas and looking like mutton dressed as lamb.

Solution – As the saying goes “Style Stays as Fashion Fades” – the key is to understand your bodyshape and then you can be a Style Goddess whatever your age.  Most women focus on their negatives, but by understanding your own good points and using clothes and accessories to show them off, you can be selective as to which fashion trends will work for you.

Dilemma – My bodyshape has changed and I feel like nothing suits me.

Solution – Life is too short to cling on to a wardrobe you are going to slim into one day.  Stop punishing yourself and learn to love who you are and live for today.  By clever use of optical illusions you can look taller, slimmer, wider, shorter – use horizontal lines to widen and verticals to lengthen.

Honestly we can make you look a dress size smaller!

Give a Nod to the Trends this Spring

A common concern from our clients, is that they don’t want to look like mutton dressed as lamb, but neither do they want to look frumpy.  The high fashion looks on the catwalk can seem a million light years away from your lifestyle, however an Integro Fashion Forecast will show you which of the key trends are really wearable for you and how easy it is to keep your look updated and stylish for 2012.
